I was very impressed with Acrobats of China. This show is for all ages. We saw performances from children to adults. I took my entire family and we are still talking about this show and some of the amazing acts we saw on stage. Acrobats of China kept our attention the entire time from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this show.
Tip: Make sure you purchase your refreshments before the show starts so you don't miss out on an amazing show.

We took our 4 and 5 year old, who are normally squirmy little kids, but they were both enraptured with the show and sat still the entire time. That was 2 months ago and they STILL talk about it. After the show, the acrobats come into the lobby and were great with the kids - took pictures and everything!
Tip: stay afterwards for the acrobat meet and greet!

The young performers in Acrobats of China were very talented gymnasts. We were amazing with the flexibility of the young women and the strength of the young men. Their spinning plates and bicycle routines were mesmerizing. The show would have been enhanced with better scenery and backdrops.
Tip: Photography was allowed when we went. Performers greeted audience members after the show.

"Awesome show, disappointing venue."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 25, 2016 NEW

My wife and I took 2 very special young people to this show. The show was amazing. The performers did amazing and unbelievable acts. However the venue left much to be desired. The landscaping was totally unkept. The grass was knee high. It appeared to be an abandoned theater from the outside and parking lot. We purchased our tickets through a local radio station at discount prices. We were told that we would have to pay taxes at the theater. What they did not tell us, was that there was an additional media fee of $5.40 per ticket. The show was great, but not flawless. (There were several times that the performers had to make multiple attempts at certain stunts). Recognizing the difficulty of the stunts, this did not diminish our appreciation for their talents. Overall, the show was great
